The Emmaus Sheffield secondhand superstore may be closed for the moment but that doesn’t mean bargain hunters have to stop supporting the homeless charity.

More items are now being placed for sale on the Emmaus Sheffield eBay page.

“It was very disappointing for both our companions and our customers when we had to close our secondhand superstore again,” said Emmaus Sheffield deputy manager Charley Fedorenko.

“But there is still a great way to support us by taking a look at some of our great range of items - including computer games and consoles and DVDs - on our eBay page, where we are hoping they will generate some extra interest and income.”

Emmaus Sheffield is the drug and alcohol-free project that provides a home, support and work for formerly homeless people in the city.

Through its Social Enterprise programme it aims to provide meaningful work and enable the people it supports – known as companions - to eventually become self-supporting once more.

One of the charity’s main fundraising schemes is its extremely popular secondhand and vintage store at the organisation’s headquarters in the historic Sipelia Works, close to the city’s Canal Basin.
